Mini Meat loafs and Cheesy Potato Fries

 Tonight we are having mini meat loafs and cheesy potato fries. Talk about a meal made in heaven for my meat and potato loving husband! We don't usually have meatloaf since it is meat centered meal, making it pretty expensive. We are however preparing for hurricane Sandy to make landfall next week and need to clean out our freezers. I would rather have a more expensive meal now and use up the meat in our freezer than have the power go out for several days and then have to throw the meat out.

To cut down on the baking time we will be making the meatloafs in a muffin tin. Then each child gets their own little mini meatloaf. That makes it a bit more fun for the kids and a bit quicker for me. Win win in my book!
